"Democrat/Tea Party - OR... Republican/Tea Party" by Merwin
I really do not know the over all direction of the Tea Party, but I do know that if Ron Paul is afiliated with it, that is a step in a good direction.
I mean really folks... the political machine is the problem in this country, and we have a golden opportunity in all parties for real change.
President Obama was elected because we desperately wanted change from the bovine scatology that D.C. has been oppressing us with for many, many decades. But, how can someone who is so akin to the machinery... no, let me rephrase that. How can someone who is so "manufactured" by the machinery, provide us with change from the machine itself..?
Obama's vague promises of change, and "YES WE CAN", was extremely inspiring, I hoped, that he might be someone who could deliver. My disappointment has not been a surprise.
BUT... that is in the past, we now have a direction that EVERYBODY, in all parties may espouse and demand from their political leaders no matter who may be running... "I will not vote for you if your platform is unconstitutional."
And yes this may be what the Tea Party is calling for... and the MEDIA may be portraying them as just a bunch of cracked pots, but consider the source. The media... conservative or liberal, is simply the propaganda machine for government. And let us say for the sake of getting this straight... even if the Tea Party is near "over the edge", it is the Constitution that can join us all in safety, and keep the country from going over the edge.
It would not matter about the social constructs of your political ideals, if they were reinforced by constitutionalism.
You may have all the things that you would like your governments (federal, state and local) to do, and be, but in their appropriate settings. All the things that you, we, they, would like to implement can be accomplished both in the political and private sectors, constitutionally. Democrat, Republican, Libertarian... whatever.
We need to elect Ron Paul to send two messages... one to the monstrous political machinery, and the other to the American citizenry.
To the Machine... "You are dead, and we will get your affairs ordered."
And to the People... "You are very much alive, you are free, big brother has been dealt with, you and I, are in charge! Vote... Run for offices... and do it all Constitutionally."
Yes liberals, conservatives and libertarians see things differently, but it has been the Machine that has fanned the flames of those differences, to keep us at odds with one another while the Machine picks apart our Constitutional safeguards. Stop the scatology... vote Ron Paul, and get involved..!
Write about it..! Run for office..! VOTE..!
